We are delighted to present to auction this exciting steading conversion project near to the village of Kirkinner, around 10 miles south of Newton Stewart in Dumfries and Galloway.

The overall opportunity comprises a traditional stone-built farm barn, large renovated storage shed, and stables with tack and rug rooms and undercover yard. In addition, there are large grounds extending to approximately 1.38 acres which the current owners have divided into paddocks, allotments and chicken coups.
**Please Note there is no Agricultural tie to the property**.

Full planning permission has been granted by Dumfries and Galloway Council (application reference 19/1819/FUL) for conversion of the barn building into a two bedroom dwelling with open plan lounge/diner, kitchen, bathroom and utility room. The large storage shed and substantial grounds could potentially present further development opportunities subject, of course, to the required consents being granted.

With increasing demand for rural living, and also staycations, this outstanding development is sure to attract interest from both those looking to create a stunning family home in rural location, as well as from investors looking to profit from the strength of the serviced accommodation/holiday rental market in an area offering a wide range of options for outdoor enthusiasts.

Early viewing is recommended to fully appreciate the scale and value of the opportunity on offer.
